A campaign I can get behind.

Fed up with Christian revisionists pretending that the winter solstice has anything whatsoever to do with their imaginary friend, Holte Ende has started up his own campaign: Let's put Woden back in Wednesday.

Of course, some fundie bampots have already noticed Satan’s false system of naming the days of the week, and also the months. Apparently

Satan has attempted to change all the things that God has set in place for us to determine when is the correct time to worship Him. Worship on the wrong day is not honouring God our Father and obeying the Commandments.

That particular site, belonging to an Australian church, does have the decency to admit that Christmas is not a Christian festival, though.

The Bible does not tell us to keep any holy day in the 11th month or in December. But, once again, Satan substituted a pagan festival of the Saturnalia, and linked it with Christ’s supposed birthday, and tales of Santa Claus.

In fact, they have an entire leaflet explaining how unchristian the festival is. For added amusement, the organisation behind the site is headquartered in a town called Woden.

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
